The Institute of Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy (IICP) was established in 2003 to provide a comprehensive training service for those who wish to pursue professional and academic accreditation in the mental health services. The programmes encompass a multicultural and pluralistic approach with a core philosophical framework reflecting the principles and practices of Choice Theory/Reality Therapy, Person Centred Counselling and Multicultural Counselling and Therapy. The Diploma Programme was awarded Recognition Status by the Irish Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy in 2006.
Over the last number of years the Institute has actively engaged in enhancing the programme with the goal of gaining academic validation as an honours degree. In May 2010 a panel of international academic and professional experts in the field was appointed to examine the programme of study. The result of this process is that the panel recommended the programme be validated as a level 8 (Hons) Degree. Furthermore, in April 2015, QQI validated our Level 9 MA in Pluralistic Counselling and Psychotherapy.

IICP are hosting a Taster Evening on Tuesday 28th of February 2017 from 7.00pm to 9.00p.m.

This morning session will introduce participants to the subject of counselling and psychotherapy. Any good psychotherapy training programme will include Counselling Skills, Theory and Personal Development, so this taster session will include brief inputs on all three facets of training.

You can also learn more about all the courses on offer here at IICP.

  • Certificate Programme in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapeutic Studies
  • Diploma/BA Level 7 in Counselling & Psychotherapy
  • Diploma/BA (Hons) in Counselling & Psychotherapy

Understanding and Working with Early Relational Trauma and Borderline States of Mind

A One-Day Workshop with Marcus West

When: 27 May, 2017 9.30am – 4.30pm (5.5 CPD hours, certificate provided)

Where: Wood Quay Venue, Wood Quay, Dublin 8

Cost: €110 (Tea and coffee included)

For more information and to book your place email contact@nullsymposion.ie or visit www.symposion.ie.

This practical workshop will explore how advances in our understanding of trauma, and early relational trauma in particular, throws vital light on some of the areas with which psychoanalysis has traditionally struggled – particularly in narcissistic and borderline presentations. Despite years of antipathy, psychoanalysis and trauma theory both need and complement each other.

The workshop, which will be especially relevant for psychotherapists, psychologists, counsellors, psychiatrists, and psychotherapy/psychology students, will assist practitioners to understand the underlying dynamics behind clients’ apparently destructive ways of relating, beliefs, and affective-somatic reactions. We will explore the primitive roots of experiences such as nihilism, despair, regression, suicidal impulses, anxiety, and murderousness. A main focus of the day will be on how the patterns associated with early relational trauma – frequently of an unbearable, conflictual or ‘impossible’ nature – emerge in the consulting room and how they can be worked with more safely and effectively. An exploration of Jung’s concept of the Complex will be central to this understanding.

A second thread for the day will be exploring the way these early relational patterns are co-constructed between therapist and client, and how and why the therapist can be deeply affected by and drawn into the dynamics. We will examine the kinds of pressures on the therapist that can lead to impasse or breakdown of the therapy, and how these can be worked through, particularly issues around idealisation, retraumatisation, the erotic transference & self-disclosure. The therapist’s personality and attitudes play a significant role in the course and outcome of the therapy, thus requiring the therapist to become more …read more

Co-Dependency, Narcissism & Addiction – What’s the Link?

CO-DEPENDENCY, NARCISSISM & ADDICTION – WHAT’S THE LINK?

(… 95% of your clients are affected!)

(14 CPD points)

Co-dependency as a condition is often misunderstood – and its crucial link with narcissism and addiction missed by many helping professionals. As 95% of clients are affected, this is a detrimental loss.

However, experience shows that when the co-dependent realises how co-dependency, narcissism and addiction feed into each other, they then fully understand how to take their power back! Our job as helping professionals is to help them see that.

Through my work I have developed a helpful model that addresses this triad and it is my client’s experience (young and old) that the model works. Now, your clients can benefit too!”

– Margaret Parkes

Programme Outline:

This intensive and experiential programme is based around a therapeutic model for working with co-dependent adults and young people who come from an emotionally abusive and neglectful family of origin. It also highlights how co-dependency can be central to many addictions. Being goal focused, this model encourages the helping professional to take an interactive role – (check www.margaretparkes.ie for more information).

Understanding Trauma Two Day Workshop

Introduction:

IICP are delighted to introduce this new two day workshop on Understanding Trauma. Before mental health practitioners can work in depth with a client’s trauma they need an understanding of both what trauma is and how to engage with it safely before embarking on in-depth work. This two day workshop will look at those initial requirements – knowledge of the dynamics of trauma and establishing safety.

Workshop Content:

  • Understand the key components of psychological trauma;
  • Be able to identify the many sources of trauma;
  • Know the difference between developmental trauma and traumatic injury;
  • Recognise the many symptoms of trauma;
  • Have a good understanding of the physiology of the brain and its role in trauma;
  • Understand the reaction of trauma clients;
  • Recognise the body’s role in trauma and learn how the body tries to work through trauma and use some basic body-orientated techniques to help the body do this safely
  • Have a good understanding of the immediate & long term effects of PTSD;
  • Be introduced to why talking therapies may not help in this initial stage of trauma work;
  • Start to work with establishing safety through resourcing & boundary setting.
  • Understand the concept of the ‘window of tolerance’ and its importance;
  • Understand the “three trauma types” of clients and the implications for therapy and be introduced to three safety protocols and given the opportunity to work with them;
  • Be able to identify symptoms of autonomic nervous system arousal and learn how to separate physical from emotional arousal in order to establish safety;

Transpersonal Therapist Training at Dunderry Park

For more info email info@nullshamanismireland.com or call 046 9074455

What is Transpersonal Psychology?

The term Transpersonal means beyond the personal. It is a form of spiritual psychology which studies human experiences beyond the realms of ordinary reality. This includes methods such as dreamwork, meditation, journeying, yoga, reiki, trance states, shamanism, mystical and peak experiences, ecology, non ordinary states of awareness and consciousness studies. According Lajoe and Shapiro (1992) Transpersonal Psychology is concerned with humanity’s highest potential, and with the recognition, understanding, and realisation of unitive, spiritual and transcendent states of consciousness.

At the Irish Centre for Shamanic and Transpersonal studies, we believe that an experiential and holistic approach to understanding Transpersonal Psychology is vital. We strive to combine the spiritual with the practical and theoretical, so that participants can have access to a direct experiential and theoretical understanding of the spiritual realms.

What does the Transpersonal Therapist Training involve?

This training will be modular in nature, participants can begin the course at any point as credits will be awarded for each module completed leading to a final certificate of accreditation as a Transpersonal Therapist when the required amount of credits have been obtained.

These credits will also be given for past courses completed through The Irish Centre for Shamanic and Transpersonal Studies when students have registered for the Transpersonal Therapist Training Course. These include Soul Seminars, Shamanic Breathwork, All Shamanic Courses, and One day courses.

How is the course accredited?

The course is accredited by The Irish Centre for Shamanic and Transpersonal Studies, in the same manner as the Shamanic Practitioners course. The training allows those who have undertaken some Shamanic and Transpersonal studies to deepen their theoretical knowledge and gain accreditation as a Transpersonal Therapist. It also allows those with no past experience an opportunity to …read more
